    I have been working at Wawa full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The job hours are flexible and the pay is decent. Also after a year, you may qualify for amazing benefits and access to the Employee Stock Ownership Program. Can't forget the 401k, which is awesome!

    Cons

    The environment is very fast paced so you have to learn things quickly. You'll be expected to work quickly, yet efficiently. There's alot of work to do and sometimes it feels like there's not enough time to do it or enough people in a shift to get it all done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow the "Wawa way" and you'll be fine.
